Curley and Schultz did not report the incident to any outside authorities. They simply banned Sandusky from taking children to the football building. They also took Sandusky’s keys to the locker room and reported the incident to Second Mile. Graham Spanier the school’s president approved these actions. However, the Second Mile stated that they never knew anything about the incident, although this may not be accurate.
In this essay I will be stating my reasons for Tom Robinson’s innocence in the novel “To Kill a Mockingbird”. The evidence I will be giving will put Mr. Robinson in the right and will question Bob Ewell’s actions towards Mayella Ewell. Tom Robinson is a good man and would never rape another human being. When we first hear of the case Tom Robinson was accused of raping Mayella Ewell after coming home from work. It was said that Robinson took advantage of Mayella, when in fact through this case the Ewell’s took advantage of Mr. Robinson.
His reason- he felt that they were not giving him the rights he deserved by denying him access to the law library and the state Attorney Grievance Commission. Unlike Colin Ferguson, Stewart was able to prove his innocence and was acquitted of the murder charges. The Washington Post stated that the only thing left of this case was the prosecution thinking twice about the quality of their case, if someone who was a high school dropout was able to beat them. No one went back and asked if he was denied any rights, possibly because Stewart came out of the court room
His mothers parental monitoring was too much, she never let Ed do anything and always kept him hidden. The influence of his brother putting down there mother, who Ed worshipped was another factor in his downfall. Skinner’s Theory of Behavior: Gein never received any positive reinforcement Antisocial personality disorder (APD): This is a disorder Ed had because he failed to conform to the norms of society. Holmes and De Burger (1998): Have a theory that serial killers fall into 4 groups; Eddie falls into the hedonistic type because he strived for pleasure in playing with the bodies of his victims. Coercion Developmental Theory: Gerald Patterson (1982, 1986) states that parenting monitoring can cause early onset delinquency.
He not only lies by changing his grades for the prep school applications, but he continuously changes his C's to A's on his report . He also lies to priests in confession and to friends about his hunting conquests and steals things while roaming the streets of Seattle with his friends. Jack being depicted as thief reflects his concern for physical safety as he continues breaking the law. He believes that if he acts rebellious he is invincible and no one can harm him. One would think that Jack is a disturbed child with no redeeming qualities.
Haters go on stating it is absurd that young Washington's father would have bestowed on him an ax without making it clear that George was not to go near the crimson tree. Why do the haters attempt to rewrite this behavior? Someone may retort, "Young Washington would not have hacked down his father’s Cherry Tree if Mr. Washington had educated him." Critics are rude coyotes. If this statement is genuine, then either whippersnappers never disregard the rules or parents constantly train their children.
Giles Corey was imprisoned for contempt of the court and later charged with being involved in witchcraft. Unlike others Giles was not hanged since he did not agree or deny charges of witchcraft. “He would not answer aye of nay to his indictment, for if he denied the charge they’d hang him surely, and auction out his property “(Miller 135). Giles was pressed with rocks until he accepted the charges; however Giles stayed mute and died when his chest could not bear anymore weight of the rocks. Giles denies charges in order to pass down his land to his son and takes painful death.
There was going to be a new trial, which would create a challenge for the prosecution in light of the DNA evidence. The appeal was never waited on even though it was granted due to the fact that they would have had to be in jail another six months and if anything went to the appeal, Echols could have been executed. He was the friend of the other two convicted and they did not want to see, or be responsible in any way, for their friend being executed. The courts would never have let the defendants out if they had not known their innocence found with the new DNA evidence. The state did not want to have to admit that they arrested innocents and locked them up for 18 years.
Due to his upbringing, it is easy for me to see where his acts of violence came from as an adult. From the text-version of the video provided I read, “Born in Connecticut in 1800, John Brown had a strict religious upbringing. At age 12, he saw a slave brutally beaten.” From those two sentences I can infer that his thoughts were probably suppressed and his innocence was damaged at a young age, obviously scarring him for the rest of his life. I agree with him on his cause for violence, but I disagree on the acts he took part of. John Brown’s raid on Harpers Ferry didn’t help the cause of abolition.
We would allow them to carry on with stealing our hard earned money for them selves and then saying we need to pay more. No one before Martin Luther had done anything about the church, we are not even sure if people noticed the church was this corrupt before. But Martin Luther did and now we do not have to deal with the corrupt ways of the church. Outside of religion, Martin Luther is also famous for being one of the only people in his life time to plan his own kidnapping with his friend to avoid persecution by the church. Luther was "Kidnapped" for almost a full year before returning
